DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGES DISMISSED ON NOVEMBER 29, 2017
In October 2017, we were retained to assist Kristen on a domestic violence charge that was filed in 2015. Once we discussed the case with the client, we determined that there were two issues that were pressing. First, she appeared to be innocent to the charges. The prosecutor in this case filed charges against her when the charges had no merit. Second, the incident occurred in 2015 and she didn’t know about the charges until 2017 when she went to do a background interview and it came up that she had an outstanding warrant.
We appeared in court and tried talking to the prosecutor informally about dropping the charges as she was innocent. Unfortunately, this prosecutor didn’t see the case the same way we did. Therefore, after our initial attempt to resolve it informally didn’t work, we filed a MOTION TO DISMISS THE CASE (CLICK HERE FOR A COPY OF THE MOTION TO DISMISS). The motion was filed on 11/7/18. CLICK HERE TO SEE A COPY OF THE 11/7/17 HEARING RESULTS).
On 11/29/2017, our motion to dismiss was heard. The prosecutor in the case agreed to dismiss the case against Kristen on that date. CLICK HERE FOR THE DISMISSAL ON 11/29/17.
At KIA LAW FIRM, we don’t just recall warrants to plead clients guilty. Rather, we focus on you, the client. We determine the best course of action and outcome that suits your needs. Here, Kristen deserved nothing short of a dismissal. She can continue with her career without any criminal blemishes on her record. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
MISDEMEANOR THEFT CHARGE DISMISSED ON 10/20/17. CASE RESOLVES FOR AN INFRACTION
Our client was charged for a theft charge. We were successful in dismissing her misdemeanor charge and substituting an infraction in its place. By not having a misdemeanor on her record, our client will be able to get a job and not be judged by a dumb mistake she made in her 20s. All too often, people plead guilty in court because they don’t want to make an effort to get reduced charges. By having her misdemeanor dismissed, our client will be able to answer “NO” to the question that asks, “Have you ever been convicted of any misdemeanor felony offenses”. With this difficult job market, it is so important to keep a clear record as much as possible. Therefore, we always recommend having an attorney review the fact of your theft case before you assume there is no defense to whatever you may have done.
We are available 24/7 to address your case.

OCTOBER 20, 2017 DISMISSAL OF BURGLARY CHARGES AFTER 27 MONTHS OF LITIGATION
Our client, in July 2015 was falsely accused of committing a burglary. When we first met Pierre 27 months ago in July 2015, he explained how he did not commit any crimes. He drew us a picture of the layout of the scene and indicated that he was being set up by a competitor who was in the same line of business. The purpose of the false allegation was to force our client out of business. From day one, we believed in the innocence of our client. Session after session, we gathered all of our evidence in support of his defense. We provided the prosecution with documentation, police reports, photos and business receipts showing that the allegations were false. We were offered “deals” which required our client to plead guilty to some other offense. Since our client was innocent, we continuously refused. In fact, we even set the matter for trial multiple times. Eventually, after 27 months (our longest case to be honest), the prosecutor finally agreed to dismiss all of the charges against Pierre. When we called Pierre to tell him about the news, he cried. It truly is a beautiful thing to be able to call a client and tell them that their case has been dismissed.
So, what is the moral of the story here. At KIA LAW FIRM, we don’t take on a case to finish it as quickly as possible. We take our time to DO THINGS RIGHT. Although we were on a flat-fee with the client, our focus has never been on finishing cases quickly. Instead, we resolve cases based on our belief that we have reached the best result possible. In this case, for Pierre, the best result was 27 months of litigation and 27 COURT SESSIONS.
The attorney-client privilege is a relationship based on TRUST. If you can’t trust your lawyer, don’t hire him/her. We strive to be the best firm to protect your interests. We don’t cut corners and protect you from day one.

OCTOBER 18, 2017 DISMISSAL OF DUI CHARGES FOR UNDER 21 YEAR OLD CLIENT. SHE PLED GUILTY TO AN INFRACTION (CVC 23140) WITH NO PROBATION
In April 2017, we received a call from a dear client advising that her daughter, who was under 21 years old, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. California has an extremely strict zero-tolerance policy with regard to underage drinking. Our strategic planning allowed us to immediately encourage the minor to attend AA meetings, as well as attend a DUI course so that she can appreciate the dangers of drinking and driving. Aspiring to become a Physician one day, we were focused on getting her misdemeanors dismissed.
After various court appearances, we were finally able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the charges against our client and allow her to plead no contest to an INFRACTION of underage drinking (CVC 23140). As a result, Stephanie will not have a “conviction” on her record and we all remain hopeful that she has learned her lesson about the dangers of underage drinking.

Most importantly, she is not on probation whatsoever. We have always believed in giving our youths second chances. Stephanie will get that second chance and will someday pass on what she learned to others in her field of medicine.
PERSISTENCE PAYS OFF. ON 10/18/2017, DUI CHARGES CVC 23152(a) DISMISSED. CLIENT PLEADS TO NON-DUI (DRY RECKLESS) CVC 23103
One of the most common criminal charges filed against the “average person” is a DUI. This can happen to anyone. You are enjoying a beer, wine or other alcoholic beverage, and then, suddenly, you are confronted with having to prove that you’re not impaired. You are asked to engage in a series of balancing acts (which you don’t have to do by the way) and then suddenly you’re arrested. Well, there are over 100 reasons why we can convince a prosecutor to dismiss DUI charges against you. Each case is unique. Each case has its own fact pattern. But, in theory, the defense presentation is the same. We analyze and over analyze and come up with creative solutions.
In the case above, our client “Amanda” was charged with a DUI. After months of litigation, reviewing evidence, videos, audio, etc., we were able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the DUI charges against our client. In exchange, our client pled guilty to a “dry reckless” commonly known as “reckless driving”. This is NOT A DUI. Imagine if you were driving reckless on the road without being impaired or under the influence of alcohol. That is what this charge is about.

DUI CHARGES DISMISSED ON 9/25/17, CLIENT PLED TO DRY RECKLESS (NOT A DUI)
In August 2017, our client, JORGE, was charged with violating the DUI laws of the State of California. He was subsequently charged with California Vehicle Code 23152(a) and 23152(b). We set the case for trial and on September 25, 2017, the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the the DUI charges and add an amended count 3 charge for RECKLESS DRIVING. This is the best outcome for a DUI case, short of a dismissal. A dry reckless is not a DUI and it does not count as a priorable DUI.

immigration cases or family law matters. We couldn’t refuse settling for an infraction. He’s happy. Mr. Feyzjou is happy. Off to the next case.

Our client, Homar, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. After successful representation, we were able to get both DUI charges dismissed and have the client

CLIENT ARRESTED ON FELONY GUN CHARGES ON 2/11/2017. SHE IS CHARGED WITH MISDEMEANOR GUN CHARGES. CASE SETTLES ON THE DAY OF TRIAL FOR AN INFRACTION DISTURBING THE PEACE
Our client was falsely accused of having constructive possession of a gun that was in her vehicle. Despite the fact that someone else brought the gun to her car without her knowledge, the Deputy Sheriff chose to arrest her and recommend the filing of criminal charges against her. The prosecutor eventually filed the case as a violation of Penal Code 25850, possession of a loaded weapon. The matter was set for trial by our office immediately and on the day the case was set for trial, the matter was settled for an infraction of disturbing the peace. This is yet another story of an innocent client whose life could have taken a different turn had she not had the benefit of a successful defense.
CLICK HERE to see the case print from the courthouse showing the dismissal of misdemeanor charges and her resolving it for an infraction. She had to do no community service or any days in jail. She paid a $75.00 court fine and the case was over.

CLIENT AVOIDS STATE PRISON ON VIOLENT FELONY CHARGE, CASE SETTLES FOR PROBATION ON MARCH 2, 2017
In August 2016, our office received a telephone call from a distraught family member whose father was recently arrested for quite a serious charge. The maximum penalty for a violation of Penal Code 288(a) is 8 years prison.
CLICK HERE to see a copy of the maximum penalty for a violation of PC 288(a). After assembling our team of experts to evaluate the client, we were able to medical expert testimony to mitigate the damages in this case. Fortunately, we worked with a superb Riverside District Attorney who was extremely professional, cooperative and willing for our office to utilize the necessary time needed to obtain an expert. While most prosecutors are exceptionally professional, frankly, this particular prosecutor was a pleasure to work with.
In any event, on March 2, 2017, we finally were able to secure an offer from the Court wherein the client would not be sent to 3 years prison as the prosecutor wanted, rather, the client would receive only 365 days in county jail (with 50% custody credits). In other words, the client was released after 180 days in county jail and is now with his family. The maximum penalty for this offense would have been 8 years in prison.
CLICK HERE to see the CRIMINAL CASE REPORT which indicates that the matter settled for 365 days of jail and 5 years probation.
CLICK HERE to see the YELP review written by the client’s family in relation to the case.
The learning lesson from these facts is that proper lawyering can make the difference between a client being sent away to State Prison as opposed to a family member who has committed a crime to come home. At Kia Law Firm, we focus on justice. Sometimes, clients are completely innocent of their charges and nothing but aggressive lawyering can satisfy justice. Conversely, there are times where a client should get a second chance in life after having committed an offense.
As criminal defense attorneys, we strive to make a difference in every case we handle. We focus on the client’s result 24/7.
The most important advice we can give any prospective client when choosing a criminal defense lawyer is how happy have other clients been with the attorney’s prior representation of other clients. These reviews establish the focus, dedication and professionalism that the lawyer conveys to clients, court staff and opposing counsel.
Our focus is on resolving the case favorably on each case we handle. As a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist, Mr. Kia Feyzjou has the distinct ability to settle the case that need settling and to go to trial on the case that need a jury to determine guilt or innocence. It is this precise flexibility that provides clients the peace of mind knowing that Mr. Feyzjou will give 110% of his efforts to analyze and pursue every possible defense possible.
All too often, innocent people plead guilty all the time so that they can just “get it over with” or “go home”. We discourage this form of thinking.
If you have any criminal case that needs review, feel free to contact our office at (951) 686-4818 or email Mr. Feyzjou directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each prospective client will get a reply email generally the same day.
ALL FELONY CHARGES DISMISSED (PENAL CODE 422 [Criminal Threats], FIREARM, PRISON PRIORS ETC. ON FEBRUARY 9, 2017
Approximately 2 years ago, we met a client who claimed that he was innocent and that he was being falsely accused of a crime. After we conducted our own investigation in the case, we determined that he was telling the truth. We tried to get the case dismissed before preliminary hearing, however, the prosecutor was adamant that our client was “good for the charges”. Therefore, we had no choice but to force the police officer to testify at the preliminary hearing. We poked various holes in the prosecution’s case. However, despite all our work, the Court still believed that there was still sufficient evidence to reasonably believe that our client committed the crime – accordingly, the Court set a trial date.
We never gave up hope. Two weeks before trial, the prosecutor reevaluated their case. The 15 year offer that they had made to our client was taken off the table. They didn’t even offer to settle the case for a misdemeanor. The prosecutor literally dismissed all of the charges against him.
Keep in mind that our client had a significant criminal history, including two prison priors, a perjury charge and a prior DUI. However, due to the lawyering skills of Mr. Feyzjou, A Board Certified Specialist in Criminal Law, the prosecutor finally agreed to get rid of the entire case.
On February 9, 2017, the criminal charges were dismissed. Our client went home and called Mr. Feyzjou to have dinner. A remarkable evening of wine, good food and celebration was in order to celebrate the innocence of a man falsely accused of a crime.
If you have been accused of a crime and you need legal help, contact Kia Law Firm. We are available 24/7. You can reach us at (951) 686-4818.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGE DISMISSED ON THE DAY OF TRIAL FEBRUARY 14, 2017
Our client was falsely accused of committing an act of domestic violence. He was arrested on one felony charge of Penal Code 273.5. He was arrested and posted bond. When William first came into our office, he told us he was innocent and that he did not strike his wife as the initial aggressor. He claimed that he was injured in the altercation and that he was defending himself when his wife attacked him. After doing our own investigation, our office agreed and we advised William that we would seek a dismissal or a not guilty verdict at trial. On February 14, 2017 (ironically, Valentine’s Day), the matter was set for trial. Attorney Kia Feyzjou appeared along with the client to announce ready for trial. After showing up prepared and ready to start trial, the prosecutor agreed to dismiss the charge against our client. Our client was about to lose his job with a high ranking government entity because of these charges. Once the dismissal was entered, we waited to get a certified copy of the dismissal so that he could take a copy to his employer.
The moral of the story is as follows: If you are innocent and falsely accused of a crime, hire a competent, experienced attorney. At Kia Law Firm, we only take cases that we believe in to trial. We don’t waste your time setting cases for trial that aren’t cases that we expect to be successful. In this instance, the prosecutor had second thoughts about the strength of the case, hence the dismissal.
